    Well Bob, you can bet I operate diagonal to the runway when it starts feeling marginal.

    Years ago Mark told me the thrustline change would not be of help on my -12. I'm aware of the wing incidence difference, but for the life of me I don't understand why there would be no effect on a...

    Bob, pump the tires up and they all roll just fine. I haven't noticed any discernable difference between 8.50s, BW 26s and BW 31s in crosswinds. I'd bet the GY 26s will feel a lot like 8.50s;...

    I've used both of those, and 31s on my -12. I'd say the speed difference between 8.50 Dessers and 31s is roughly 5 mph, with the 26s falling in the middle.

    The magnetic compass provides a rough check on winds, as compared to GPS track. Mine is quite close to correct, and I do look at it as a cross-check.

    Bushwheel 26 are lightweight and actually 26" tall. And expensive. Goodyear 26 are heavier, and less than 26" tall (24?), and less expensive.

    When rebuilding I had purchased a used -18 exhaust system because I liked the crossover arrangement. I thought it might be more efficient than the stock -12 system. But it was so crowded between...

    Good point - I've been wondering that also. I guess just raise the jackscrew tower. A comparison of TCDS stab limits between 12 and 18 might be revealing, but I haven't made the comparison.
